CC Library Color switching from Process to Spot

I created a cmyk color library in Illustrator. I made sure the colors were global and process colors.

I saved the color library and opened up a new file.

When I use the color library in a new file, the colors are importing as spot colors, not process.

Does anyone else have this issue?

thanks.

I recreated the color palette in InDesign and remade the CC Library from the InDesign file.

That seemed to solve the issue.

According to that bug entry, if you add a global color to your library, it'll convert it to a spot color. Which is frustrating. I'd suggest everyone comment on the bug report thread linked above, and ask for a solution/update to adding global colors to shared libraries.

Hey Adobe, how long do we need to wait for this bug to be fixed? It's great that you give users new tools but if they're buggy and unreliable, needing double-checking, what's the point? All the time I just spent creating a colour library to share between files and programs was a waste.

Adobe really doesn't give a crap since they have no real competitors.

This is still a bug!  I think we are starting to see some real competitors in the web/mobile arena
